News From The Greater Church

The bishops of the Episcopal Church, concerned as they are about both the economy and the environment, spent diocesan money to fly and drive to North Carolina to speak of such things and to write a letter, the text of which may be found here.

Do you think we'll ever come to a day when the expression "speak truth to power" doesn't appear in a well-meaning missive produced by a committee of concerned people? Or variations of the expression "to live into"?

[An explanation of the photo: Kanuga Conference Center, where the bishops met, is near Hendersonville, North Carolina. That was the home of Johnny Cash (and also, for a time, Roy Orbison)].
